Welcome to our website! We take your privacy seriously and want you to understand how we collect, use, and protect your personal data.

When you leave comments on our site, we collect the information you enter in the comments form, as well as your IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection. We also use a service called Gravatar to see if you have an account with them. If you do, your profile picture may be visible to the public next to your comment. You can read the Gravatar privacy policy here: https://automattic.com/privacy/.

If you upload images to our site, please be aware that they may contain location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the site can download and extract this data from the images.

We use cookies to make your experience on our site better. If you leave a comment, you can choose to save your name, email address, and website in cookies for future use. These cookies will last for one year. When you visit our login page, we’ll set a temporary cookie to check if your browser accepts cookies. If you log in, we’ll also set some cookies to save your login information and screen display choices. These cookies will last for two days or a year, depending on the type. If you select “Remember Me,” your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

We use Google Analytics to understand how visitors use our site. Google may share this information with third parties if they are legally required to do so, or if third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. The information we collect is anonymized as much as possible, and your IP address is not included. The information is stored on servers in the United States.

Our site may include content from other websites, such as videos, images, articles, etc. When you interact with this embedded content, you are interacting with the other website directly. They may collect data about you, use cookies, track your interaction with the content, and more. Please be sure to read their privacy policies as well.

If you leave a comment on our site, it and its metadata will be retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and automatically approve any follow-up comments instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

You can see, edit, or delete your personal information at any time, except for your username. Website administrators can also see and edit this information.

You have the right to request access to, rectification or erasure of your personal data, the right to restrict processing, the right to object to processing, and the right to data portability.
